What people are saying:

“I really enjoyed the layout and the flow of the course and it has everything. Many risk and reward holes, long and short Par 3’s and plenty of great tee and pin positions, catering for all the elements. In the near future, I’m hopefully playing a Dunhill or Scottish Open at Dumbarnie Links as it could easily host a big Championship.” – European Tour Winner, Stephen Gallacher
